This piece was finished in the early hours of Friday morning. I like the piece very much...I see it hung in a child's bedroom. Unfortunately, as it was travelling to Waimate soon after, I was not able to wait to take photographs in the sunlight for my records.

The work is made from lots of hand-torn, collaged painted papers over a paint dripped & splashed surface. Modelling compound was also used initially.


(Note for Philip & Martha: a piece of my first monoprint appears in the second image - top LH square. Sorry no detailed image!)

Well, I did feel pretty tired after this one...due to no sleep.
